Finally, was starting to think the devs were trolling me.

Any plans for the fix to be included in 1.11?

Trying to fix as mod, but not found a problem :(

I think X change coord after

m_TooltipWidget.SetPos(x, y);

from \scripts\5_mission\gui\inventorynew\itemmanager.c

I don't know how it's works, but if you subtract from the x number 320 before

m_TooltipWidget.SetPos(x, y);

issue fixed for 2560*1080 (21*9):

x = x -320;

@Geez Could you provide us with an update regarding the eta for the fix?

2 updates now have left this unfixed, maybe I'm naive but it seems like a quick fix.

Yes, I don't see why it's not being fixed. I see this in the 1.12 patch notes:
"Long item names were cut off in the left bottom corner of HUD" so clearly someone was looking at a similar issue. Could've just fixed this one at the same time.

@Geez Could you provide us with an update regarding the eta for the fix?

Maybe it's because the bug report they chose to combine everything into only says "sometimes" when it is, in fact, ALWAYS an issue on 21:9 aspect ratio monitors, making them think this isn't a series issue.

Also, looking at other peoples reports and @Geez's replies, it's unclear to me whether or not the devs actually realise this isn't an issue with custom resolutions. It's an issue with 21:9 standard resolutions, something DayZ claims to support natively.

All of the fantastic progress this game is making marred for any user who uses an Ultra Wide display is galling. I cannot enjoy the game as the issue makes some UI elements completely unreadable.

Hello BrotherPlum.
We are aware that this is an issue for the 21:9 aspect ratio monitors and occurs always with these. However, there currently is no information that I could share on when this issue will be fixed. It is scheduled for a fix though.

Geez

I think it all about priorities
How many percents of DayZ players have 21:9 monitors?
In my opinion less than 5 percent

And we have alternative for fix this error, just press middle button to activate Inspect function

@PR9INICHEK If your game states that it supports it then ... yea it should support that functionality regardless of how many people use it. Simple as that.

"And we have alternative for fix this error, just press middle button to activate Inspect function" That is not a fix.

I agree, prioritizing is important and we all know that this game has other problems to deal with. Then again fixing this is a simple task, especially for someone familiar with the DayZ dev tools. The snippet you posted in an earlier comment is probably half the fix but instead of using a magic number like 320 you could use a percentage of the window width.

Anyway, I will be grateful once it's fixed.

If this is fixed, Squad developers, for example, have reworked almost the entire game during this time, and these pistols will be added and a patch will be released with bugs.

You can't even believe that they will fix it in the near future.

Ultrawide monitors aren't exactly new tech. An ​ETA on a fix would be appreciated.

@Geez Any feedback from the dev team regarding eta for this fix?

Hello Tnargav.
Unfortunately I cannot provide any estimates as to when this could be fixed.
Regards,
Geez

@Geez Do you know the overall sentiment towards this issues? I mean it's not like we're asking here for revolutionary changes that take months to plan and implement. This is basically to align the functionality to what you claim to support.

@Geez I see new patch is coming. Is there a chance this issue can be looked at and finally fixed?

Hi @Geez,

As the new patch hit the servers, I'm guessing the devs will be looking at the backlog for the next patch or the hotfixes in the current one. Would it be possible to consider this issue to be looked at?

Cheers

Tnargav

Hi @Geez,

I see 1.14 teaser came out. Are we going to be so "lucky" to have this issue looked at for this patch?

Cheers

Tnargav

This issue has completely crushed all my interest in playing the game, it makes it tedious to play. You've added more text and information to the information boxes in patches that WE CANT SEE because your Ultra Wide implementation is broken and bugged.

The devs are perfectly happy to have an "ultrawide support" tag on Steam, but I've yet to see that support in action. At least 2 years this has been a known issue. At this point, I have to wonder if they even care. If a streamer raised this as an issue it would be fixed. 2 years is too long for an issue like this to remain outstanding.

Fix it please.

How many more people need to report this before it gets scheduled for a fix, @Geez?

A UI bug is a small task that, when fixed, would massively benefit and improve the experience for players with this bug.

Over 2 years this has been a known issue, that's too long. People are becoming hostile to the process. Ultrawide monitors are becoming more popular and cheaper every day as well, this is going to become more of an issue over time.

@BrotherPlum I hope maybe nice Christmas present with the last update. We've waited soo long that ~2 month won't make a difference <dreaming>.

Well, finally got me an Ultrawide Monitor (21:10). Sad, I didnt searched too much in advance for problems with DayZ. 3840x1600 completely ruins the UI experience.

Reading the history here, how can this not be fixed after 2(!!) years?
Is there any workaround for that?

Fix this please!!!

@kharthar A fix for it would be becoming a popular streamer with this issue and complaining about.

@Tnargav workaround, not the fix

@PR9INICHEK It's not really a workaround either as it doesn't have the same result.

@PR9INICHEK

I can't believe there will be fix in the near future. It seems to me that my problem is related to the fact that it is not supported on 21: 9. Maybe you have a workaround.
https://feedback.bistudio.com/T149563

@Melis I would say just click the middle mouse button. Seems like it is a fix for everything by @PR9INICHEK.

kharthar added a comment.EditedOct 19 2021, 7:57 PM

@Tnargav I totally agree, this is neither a fix nor a workaround. Its a completely different function. And if you ever played dayz in a hustle of a fight, you would know, that looting a body, where you have to check the stats of an item by middlemousebutton, just doesn't work -> DEAD ....
So please @PR9INICHEK stop telling people to ride a bike, when the car is broken, its not a fix for the broken car.

I checked a couple of UW-Screen Youtube vids and I think I saw, that on the Samsung 49" the tooltips are not cut, not even moved aside like we see it here. So it seems it is not bound to widescreen. Its bound to the resolution/ratio, 21:9 or 21:10. And it seems, not fully verified yet, that for 21:10 the tooltips are broken... Can anyone confirm on this?

messed up the nametags before edit ;-)

@Geez 1.15 is coming. Any news on the fix for this bug?

Immediately after launching with my new monitor I noticed and after googling find this thread hahaha doesn’t look very promising

Tnargav added a comment.EditedNov 28 2021, 9:27 PM

Yea, but hey we have a very important feature of hit indicator ... that everybody was demanding so much ...

So @Geez has just stopped replying to questions about when this might be fixed, despite merging new reports about the issue, new people subscribing to this thread and the dev team working on the UI for the current patch. That was the perfect opportunity to solve this.

What exactly is the issue? Does no one on the team have the knowledge to resolve this? Did the people who do have the knowledge get moved to Arma 4? This gets more bizarre every patch that passes and this is not addressed, especially considering the latest patch has new UI features.

Explain this to us, please.

They are preparing you a new pistol and a Christmas tree in the cities on the map. And you will not appreciate it!

@Melies Looking forward to it. Will be praying for the fix under one in-game.

The ingame holiday events were added previously, starting with Halloween of 2021 I think. This year they are adding in Santa Sleigh crashes, which will be nice and I'm sure I'll enjoy it, but that doesn't fix this issue which has been outstanding for over two years which is what this bug report thread is about.

This makes it incredible difficult for a beginner. When issues like these arise, I usually drop to 16:9 ratio. Unfortunately the game doesn't seem capable of that either!

Please address this issue

Yeah I get it being low priority since I’m assuming a very small percentage of players use the affected ratios but still feel like it’s a simple fix and just so much time has passed since this issue was originally brought up

I think I must have been a bad boy last year as I didn't get this fix for Christmas ... well maybe this year? I promise I won't be killing freshies and help them as much as I can.

They fixed an exploit I reported before I made this just recently, so maybe it's about to get dropped on someone's desk to get fixed. So called "Low priority" fixes that are scheduled for fixes are probably sitting on someone's desk just gradually getting worked through.

registered so i can +1 this issue. it's super annoying. thanks devs!

Just got this game and thought something was fishy. Over a year past since first report and still no progress on this? What a shame

@Cygriq Some mentioned that it's been longer than that. But who knows, maybe this year it will get fixed?

From the newest update:

Still experiencing this on 3440x1440, hopefully this gets fixed.

Come on, almost two years and still no fix to such a simple issue? This heavily impairs the experience as I (and many other players) cannot read descriptions of items and either have to give up on reading it or do some tricks so that the description renders far enough to fit in. Just fix it!

Not sure if I should laugh or cry.
